Additional information

We always want chefs as part of our team who will be with us for a long time and will grow within our company. There is potential to move around our other businesses, another pub and a bakery, to gain more experience.



We need someone enthusiastic, hardworking and eager to learn. Our chefs prepare everything from scratch, so you will be adept at learning and remembering new skills, and happy working in a high pressured environment. The menu changes daily, so you will need to be able to keep up with the regular changes. A love of good food is a bonus. You will be preparing, and then making in service, starters and desserts, including all fish, meat and veg prep. We also make all of our own breads etc. You will be taught how to do all of these things, but you need the basic skills and the memory to take them all on.


None specific. We appreciate knowledge of food preparation, knife skills etc.

Why an apprenticeship?

As an apprentice you will earn while you train. It’s a great career choice whether you are leaving school or college, returning to work after starting a family or looking for a new career. There’s a wide range of jobs on offer.  A job at the Welsh Government is unlike any other in Wales.

At the Welsh Government you’ll be given support and guidance so you can develop your skills in the workplace. You will also need to set aside time to study for your apprenticeship. You’ll be a valued member of the team from day one.
